Lufthansa Opens its First Class Lounge at Frankfurt Airport

Lufthansa finally welcomed long-disappeared guests back to its First Class Lounge this week with more lounges set to open gradually

With the advent of the summer travel season and declining infection rates in Europe along with the easing of travel restrictions on the continent, more people are taking to the skies. In response to the rising optimism and booking numbers, Lufthansa crossed a bridge in its pandemic operations and policies and reopened the Lufthansa First Class Lounge in Terminal 1 of Frankfurt Airport this week.

Naturally, as the travel world remains in flux, the range of products offered in the lounges have had to undergo adjustments to meet current regulations. At present, food and beverage consumption is only permitted outside of the lounge. Take-away packages are available in the First Class Lounge, with a good selection of food and beverages. The popular “á la carte” service will also be resumed as soon as official regulations allow for it.

The lounge offers an exclusive and comfortable place to relax and wait for a departing flight. The First Class Lounge is open daily from 6 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Lufthansa guests can also access other lounges in Germany, as well as abroad, such as in New York. In the upcoming weeks, additional Lufthansa lounges will gradually be re-opening for customers. Soon, the First Class Terminal and the associated limousine service will be made available again. A variety of measures, such as maintaining distance and wearing a mouth and nose covering, remain in place.
